Awesome — loved the fastness of it how easy it is to maintain and the fully loaded features.its a fun car to drive especially since it is a police car and is known to drag attention and alot of people would see a man in it but instead it was a woman only 4'11 operating it.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: the look big and spacious v6 and has a spoiler in the back for that fast power drive very easy and reliable car to maintain and good on gas

Cons: is a v6 instead of 4cy

Good All-rounder. — Safe vehicle, with adequate highway / cruising power. Particularly well soundproofed. Build quality is strong, and beats the Toyota Camry for value, and lower maintenance costs than imports. It has been more dependable than my former Ford Taurus. Good all-round visibility, and electric seats easily adjust to different driver heights.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Spacious interior, durable vehicle.  Low cost of ownership.  Comfortable.  Good family car.  Respectable business transport.

Cons: V6 3.4L power is adequate, not sporty.

Great Family Car — Great family car - seats 6, with 3 seats of car seat hooks, lots of trunk space. Solid car body allows for smooth turns and quality snow handling - no issues with snow drigts here in Washington State. I have enjoyed this car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good for gas mileage, seating capacity, trunk space - this car is a great family sedan for those wanting to go smaller and more efficient than the mini van.

Cons: Average looks and power

Very Satisfied — Love the AC, cruise control, heated leather seats, overall power and performance. Very comfortable and love the sunroof. Still looks great after almost 10 years (and I bought this when it was 4 years old). Have 143k on it too! Planning on replacing only because my youngest needs a car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Reasonably quite, capable and comfortable.

Cons: Emergency brake problems required $300 retro kit due to poor engineering on the original. Traction control wiring fault required repair.

Impressive. — I really have nothing bad to say about the vehicle. I've never had any major problems with it at all. I'm quite impressed. GM did very well when they decided to start producing this vehicle. I'm very much so a fan of this vehicle.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Drives VERY well. The gas mileage is very impressive also. I'm also impressed with how fast it accelerates and how fast it can go in general.

Cons: The only con I can possibly think of is if you have a big family, then this vehicle isn't for you.

Reliable Safe & Solid — This is a Car I would have my Kids Drive I would not worry about going across country in this Vehicle. Room, comfort, reliable and solid. Occupant safety is a big selling point for the Impala. In crash tests conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the Impala earned five stars (out of five) for both the driver and front passenger in frontal impact testing, and four out of five stars in side-impact testing. In frontal offset crash testing, the Impala earned a "Good" rating, the highest possible. Anti-lock brakes and traction control are standard on the LS and SS, and optional on the base model. A side airbag for the driver only is optional on all Impalas.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Cruise control Power steering
Clock
Tachometer
Low fuel level warning
a 3.4-liter V6 engine that produces 180 horsepower and 205 pound-feet of torque. Stepping up to LS trim gets you a 3.8-liter V6 that makes 200 hp and 225 lb-ft of torque.
As one of the few six-passenger sedans on the market, the Impala does have an edge on the competition when it comes to interior space

Cons: Not Really Sporty or WOW factors interior wise

Good Vehicle, Particularly For Company Use. I Will Certainly Purchase Another — Purchased this vehicle as a company vehicle, it has proven to be great on the highway,amazingly good in slippery conditions and really good fuel economy. The V6 has really good pickup with great midrange torque for passing. After 100,000 miles the seats are holding up nicely and all the electronics wok well, very comfortable for long trips. Two thumbs up!

Pros: Surprisingly nice car. Have to admit to not really being a Chevy guy, but the comfort, quiet, and reliability have pleasantly surprised me.

Cons: Not much, only complaint is its a 2005 so no Mp3 or Bluetooth.
